Hi :)

I think we are right to keep offering both help and shared resources to 
OpenOffice.  By co-operating with each other we can achieve more and faster 
since we both share a common competitor that dominates the market.  Winning 
users from each other is small-fry compared with the user-base we could win from 
our common competition.  Oracle do occasionally reject our help but they need us 
more than we need them.  Eventually they might start accepting our help so lets 
not give up offering.

If you think what they, the OOoDEV team, are offering is to HELP the
Oracle/OO.o effort, then I believe you are mistaken.

Tom :)

Hi Tobias,

2011/2/14 public sector <>:
in my eyes the development of the projects OOo and LO hasn't much split yet
and so why aren't we using (if possible) the OOoCon for as a platform for
presentation and knowledge transfer. We are a fork but I don't think we are
enemies. We also have to think of the costumers the most part of the
presentations might be interesting for both LO and OOo Users.

Nice idea, but did you read on the german lists about the
participation at CeBit-Fair?
OOo had been offered to have a shared booth with TDF/LO, but they
denied because developers from Oracle would not have been able
(=allowed) to be present there.
So no way for that.

Of course, they (Oracle) knows what you are trying to do, and they are
rightly (correctly) not going to give it to you. 

We, made our choice and choices have consequences - so get over it, and
get on with it.

My opinion.
